  • Milestone reinforces PFU’s leading position in the document imaging market
  • Focusing on maximising its customers' efficiency has been key to more than 30 years of success

Worldwide shipments of Fujitsu branded scanners surpass 10 million units. Since 1983, Fujitsu branded scanners have been designed, manufactured and marketed by PFU Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fujitsu. PFU has continuously focused on its customers' needs, offering a broad portfolio of document scanners for professional personal, desktop, workgroup, high-volume production and networked environments and is one of the world's leading document scanner companies.

Ever since the launch of the first fi Series scanner, PFU has continually developed new products and expanded its line-up, including the addition of ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) equipped models and high-speed scanners focusing on the needs of professional organisations around the world. PFU also created software, which is bundled with fi Series scanners. PFU developed software significantly enhances scanning productivity by creating even greater digital image quality from paper documents. Launched in 2001 by PFU, ScanSnap scanners take the complication out of document imaging with one-button ease of use; bringing duplex multi-sheet scanning to everyone, combining performance and affordability in a compact size. Furthermore, with the Wi-Fi compatible ScanSnap iX Series, overhead scanning with the ScanSnap SV600 and a scan-to-cloud capability with ScanSnap Cloud, PFU are always leading the way.

Success factors

Achieving the leading position in the document scanner market and reaching the 10 million milestone is due to a combination of factors that our customers have come to value: high-quality image capture, world-class engineering skills, a sophisticated manufacturing process and consistently high standards of quality assurance. At the centre of all and an integral part of PFU's DNA is the focus on the customer, which is why in achieving the number 1 position, sales partners in more than 100 countries have played a vital role.

PFU has launched a “10M achievement” website in honour of this 10 million scanner milestone. Utilising the slogan “Good quality has 10 million reasons”, which contains messages as to why customers have consistently purchased Fujitsu scanners, this website will be sharing global campaign information as well as the history of PFU’s success.

“When developing products, PFU always has a focus on users' needs and customers' feedback. Combined with the engineers' creativity, this has enabled us to create winning products with unique features and build a strong market position”, said Mike Nelson, Senior Vice President, PFU (EMEA) Limited.

“We would like to utilise this opportunity to express our sincerest gratitude not only to our customers but also to all those that have been involved with our scanners. Our scanners have been able to keep evolving thanks to all our partners and customers that have remained by our side. The 10 million scanner benchmark is a stepping stone for PFU and we are committed to facilitating our customers’ lifestyles through continuous technological innovation and investigation of our customers' needs”, said Kiyoshi Hasegawa, President of PFU Limited.
